Windows is the fail boat, all they do is spread their bloatware and put out all this propaganda to keep commercial interests on their side and let Linux, an obviously better OS starve, despite the fact it's build is superior to Windows'. Without the major attraction of commercial interests on the gaming market, Linux has been suffocated and detached from the gaming community, not even one good FPS =l
But Microsoft has good business sense, not who makes the best product just who markets it the best.
My computer doesn't qualify Lol, plus all windows sucks.
If your PC can run Vista it will run Win7 as it uses less memory than Vista, I got a cracked copy of Windows 7 Ultimate that I have running on 4 PCs and have not had one problem. But you are right, Microsoft does suck, if I wasn't a gamer I would use something other than Windows..
